Clinical Implication and Application of Arterial Stiffness
Recognition of arterial stiffness is clinically important because it is associated with target organ damage and future cardiovascular events, independent of traditional risk factors. In addition, arterial stiffness information can be used to better understand the underlying pathophysiology of certain cardiovascular diseases. This session will show how arterial stiffness can be clinically utilized for several conditions. More specifically, the effects of arterial stiffness on future cardiovascular events, cerebral small vessel disease, heart failure with preserved ejection fraction, orthostatic hypotension, and chronic kidney disease will be discussed sequentially in this wonderful session. This session will provide you with a deeper understanding of the clinical application of arterial stiffness.
